Enable the Company-level Billing Rates override option

When a company is associated with a project and this option is enabled, changes made to the company-level billing rates override the billing rate set on the project.

When a user manually recalculates finances on the project, any changes to the company-level billing rates are applied. Historical revenue calculations are also overridden unless they are marked as billed.

  1. Go to a project.

  2. Click the More menu next to the name of the project in the header, then click Edit.

  3. In the Finance section, enable the Allow company-level billing rates to override project-level billing rates.

    note caution
    Enabling this option overrides historical revenue calculations unless they are marked as billed. You can preserve the historical revenue calculations by creating a billing record. For more information, see the article Create billing records
  4. Click Save Changes.

Update Company-level Billing Rates and apply them to a project

After you have enabled the company-level billing rates override option on a project, changes made to the company billing rates apply to the project any time the finances are recalculated.

Users must have access to Companies in their access level to update company-level billing rates.
  1. Click the Main Menu icon in the upper-right corner of Adobe Workfront, then click Setup.

  2. Click Companies.

  3. Click the name of the company that is associated with the project for which you enabled company-level billing rates override.

  4. Click Billing Rates in the left panel.

  5. Update the Company Billing Rate and start/end dates for an existing job role, then press Enter.

    To add a new date effective company billing rate, select a billing rate for the job role and click Edit. For more information on date effective company billing rates, see Override job role billing rates at the company level.
